This is good information as I have had my eye on this model but still pondering as I have read a lot of exerpts from navigon users both positive and negative and the responses about this unit are pretty much consistent by all so I am glad to hear that improvements, updates, etc are forth coming.
Please advise if the update of Navigon 2100 didn't bring any problems to the Poi-warner functioning. I've read that it can cause problems to traffic feature ( wich I don't have yet). Any help will be appreciated.
You can get the details on the Navigon forums at
I think you have to reinstall POI warner after doing the update.
I don't use POI warner on mine but it did not effect traffic. Traffic has always worked well on mine. The update did help the items as shown above.
The Only Problem found with update was, you need to reinstall POI-Warner afterwards. Thats all to report.
So make a Backup of your pois directory before you do the upgrade, then reinstall POI_Warner and copy the backup data to the pois directory on the Card.
Thanks for advice! I didn't even think about backing up the POIs.
I really wish Navigon would update the keypads - the keys are just way to small to use while on the road, even parked...
I found that using regular pencil with eraser pretty much solves the problem, especially if you need to enter info on a keypad. Use the eraser part to push buttons. I have touch screen protector on mine so I can even use the stylus.
